I wanted to introduce myself. I just bought my first Economy Tractor, a 1975 Jim Dandy.

I just joined this site and I have already learned a lot.

I read that there is a USB thumb drive available with manuals and information for Economy Tractors. Could someone please let me know how I can order one?

Here is a picture of my tractor when I picked it up.

Thanks.

Hi ewf, welcome to the group and Economy tractor ownership, they are great tractor I'm sure you will be finding that out soon. Fellow member KennyP has the information on ordering the  thumb drive he will be along sometime. What are your plans going to restore it or just get it up and going and use it/

Thanks everyone for the welcoming and thank you KennyP for the thumb drive info.

I am fortunate that my tractor was already running when I bought it. My plans for it are to just basically clean it up and tinker with it. A few things I would like to do first are to replace the steering wheel and rewire it if I can ever get my kids off of it long enough to have time to work on it!

Here are some better pictures of it.
